Why – Addressing the Sanitation Challenge, Supplementing SBM

In an effort to help strengthen the capacities at the districts and provide them technical and management support, Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, in partnership with the Tata Trusts, decided to offer a cadre of skilled young professionals to work as Zila Swachh Bharat Preraks (ZSBPs). One ZSBP in each district, across the country, will be provided at no cost to the state government or the district. Over 300 Preraks have already started working in the field.
